Now for all of you eagle-eyed readers out there here's a newsflash for you! We'll have a new large Fågel Pitcher coming really really soon. We have done the tests on the new size and it should be in-store within the next 3-4 weeks. It holds approximately 1.3 litres and looks equally good as a still-life piece in a grouping or filled with flowers. I'm really excited as this will mark the next stage of our design direction at Bison.... a long and winding road indeed!
We'll send out a quick notification on Facebook or via the blog once the pieces leave for our stores so you can check them out for yourselves. Thanks for your patience as we test and work on each new form. It's easy to make a 'product' but much more time-consuming to make something that will stand the test of time. It can take up to three months from inception to prototyping (and then finally incorporating the new piece in to the collection) to actually producing the final version. Actually, the one we photographed in the above shot is filled with sweet peas and sitting in my kitchen. I have a simple rule... if a piece we create doesn't 'work' in my home then it won't make it into the range.
